Each year on November 21, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple. This is one of the Twelve Great Feasts of the Orthodox liturgical Calendar year.
Wishing a blessed Feast Day to all!
The Holy Bishop Nikolai Velimirovich writing about the Theotokos, says:
“At any point where eternity comes into contact with time, where heaven comes into contact with earth, a great light appears. And it is light which is incomprehensible to you, and not darkness. The Holy Virgin in Nazareth was that blessed point, where heaven came into contact with earth. And from that point a great light came forth, which began to shine over the entire world. It is light which incomprehensible to you, blessed people, and not darkness.” ( The Faith of the Chosen People, pg. 36)
Below is some verse I wrote about the Theotokos:
The Theotokos: Bringing Christ to Light
God who eyes cannot see,
Dwells beyond visible spectrum.
The Indescribable, ineffable, invisible,
Who the Virgin brings to light.
A mystery revealed and concealed is
True exegesis of the Word.
Tanakh is understood
Christ opens our eyes to God
As He enters visible light.
God opens our eyes to Christ
Who is Light of Light.
As the beginning saw light spoken,
Now at the Nativity
A new verbalization of the Word.
